Dhaka Dynamites beat Rangpur Riders by 2-run in the last-ball thriller in the 9th BPL match of 2019 at Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium today. Debutant spinner Al Islam's 4 wickets with hat-trick help Dhaka to defend 14-run in the last over.
After winning the toss Rangpur Skipper Mashrafe Mortaza asked Dhaka Dynamites to bat first. A spectacular batting performance by Keiron Pollard helped Dhaka reach 183/9 in 20 over. Bowlers help Dhaka to restrict Riders to 181/9 to win the match.
Chasing the target Rangpur Riders lost both opener CH Gayle (8) and Mehedi Maruf (10) on 25. But South African RR Rossouw 83 off 44 and Mohammad Mithun 49 off 35 keeps Ryders on the right track. After losing Rossouw on 146 Riders lost their momentum. Dhaka Skipper Shakib Al Hasan send back RS Bopara on 149.
In the 18th over Debutant spinner Al Islam made a hat-trick by sending Mohammad Mithun, Mashrafe Mortaza and Farhad Reza in his last 3-ball and Dhaka back the match strongly. In the 19th over Sunil Narine bagged Sohag Gazi and BAC Howell (13). But Shafiul Islam shows hope for the Riders by hitting two fours in the first two balls in the last over of Al Islam. But Nazmul Islam managed to add 1-run in 4th and 5th ball. So Riders needed 4 in the last ball but Shafiul Islam managed only 1 in the last ball.
Earlier, West Indies batsman Pollard struck 62 off 26 balls with five fours and four sixes. He also added 78 runs off 40 balls with Shakib Al Hasan in the fifth wicket stand.
The partnership was the main pillar of Dynamites' innings against defending champions Riders. Shakib added 36 runs and remained the second highest run-scorer for his side.
Shafiul Islam, the right-hand pacer of Riders, took three scalps, and all of them were in the last over of the innings.
Dynamites stood at 142/4 at the end of 15th over. They added 41 runs and lost five wickets in the remaining overs.
After the first 10 overs, Dynamites were 75 for four. They lost the first wicket when Shohag Gazi trapped Hazratullah Zazai (1) in his first ball of the match. The Afghan, with two fifties in the tournament, tried to cut Shohag away but got bowled.
Dynamites lost their second wicket at 19 when Riders captain Mashrafe Bin Mortaza forced Sunil Narine to sky a catch straight to point. Ravi Bopara took an easy one there.
Rony Talukdar tried to control the initial damage hitting 18 off eight balls but failed to continue the momentum. Benny Howell sprint back from his position to take a superb catch at extra-cover off Shohag's delivery.
In the ninth over, Dynamites lost Mizanur Rahman to Howell. Mizanur missed the ball that was coming straight to the stump, and he was given LBW by the umpires without a second thought.
